    Lets Eat!I admit it. I love food. I tried a diet once or twice.

    Maybe even three times. Didnt like it. Choose notto ever try it again.

    Ive learned, however, that eating healthy is a dif-ferent topic entirely. I feel better and Im happierwhen I make wise choices about what I eat. Thatdoesnt mean I cant go and have loads of fun withthe rest of them while doing so.

    This months special feature is Fabulous FoodieFun. And believe me, there are somefantastic food - related destinationsacross the state. Any time you canblend a meal with another activity,youve got double the fun. Right? Forinstance, have you ever tasted Japan-ese beef? Get ready because we cando it in Roanoke, outside of Ft.

    Wayne. Shown on the cover, see page 10 for details.Now what in the world is a moveable feast? Eatingon the run (or walk) Take an Indy Indie Food Tour tolearn about the latest at a number of restaurants inone evening.

    Its harvest time in Ohio and time for celebrations.Festivals named after the produce are as numerous asthe alphabet. To name only a few, there is the Can-died Apple Festival (P. 18), Wine & Cheese Festival (P.9) and Blueberry Festival (P. 21) All have scheduledfun activities for members of the whole family toenjoy while eating the delicious fruits of the farmerslabor. Even if a festival isnt named after a food,theres sure to be delicious entrees served at the gath-ering. After all, what is a festival or fair without cot-ton candy, elephant ears, a corndog or a candiedapple?

    Last, but certainly not least, theres the popularchile cook os. See them on pages 2 and 20.

    So what is YOUR favorite foodie place to go,food event or culinary person to see? Share withus on facebook for a chance to win a FREE week-end getaway! Results - next month!!

    And as the French chefs say, Bon Appetite
